Manoj Bajpayee bags best actor Asia Pacific Screen Award for Bhonsle, says ‘We have been trying to make this film for 4.5yrs’

Nov 24, 2019:

Manoj Bajpayee won the best actor award at the Asia Pacific Screen Awards for Bhonsle – his second best actor award at APSA after he bagged it for his performance in Aligarh in 2016.

Directed by Devashish Makhija, the Hindi feature narrates the story of a police constable (Bajpayee), who tries to fight the struggles of migrants and their battles with the local politicians. The actor said while getting nominated for the honour in itself is an achievement, winning the award is “quite a privilege”. “But winning it second time, and being nominated third time is a huge feeling of accomplishment that I have. Winning it for Bhonsle is all the more important because it is a very special film for me. It’s a passion project. We have been trying to make this film for four-and-a-half years,” Bajpayee said in a statement.
